Statements by coach Ricardo Sousa after the League Cup match against Porto Mafra (2:2)

About the game: “As I said before the game, we did not come here to put the bus in front of the goal and expect miracles. We tried to be a team with principles. We have them only because my team has the quality so that we have them. We tried to share the game with Porto on an equal footing. We managed to go into the break with a two-goal lead, a comfortable lead.”

The second part: “Unfortunately Porto managed to get 2-1 in the first three minutes and we knew we were going to suffer a bit from now on. Porto have a lot of solutions and a lot of quality. They created a lot of difficulties for us.”

Draw: “They managed to make it 2-2 and we defended as best we could. As a result, I remove the attitude towards this game, it praises what they showed and what they wanted. There are boys here who deserve a lot, and today they showed that they have the quality for so much more.”

surprise: “In the end, we were surprised, and a sign of this was the score 0-2 at half-time. There were two of them, and we had one more situation to score. In the first half, Porto only seemed to get one shot on goal. “We had a good first half, but we played at home against the national champions. We are a second league team and I think Porto have six players in the World Cup. We have six injuries. Maybe the six we have.” Porto “is not as necessary at the World Cup as those that we have injuries.”

Only give the yellow card to the goalkeeper in the second half. I prefer not to give the yellow card … But that’s not why we lost. We can’t give the opponent 45 minutes. The referee must give 12, 14, 16 minutes. We had the conditions to change the result, but this did not happen.

Game analysis: “I told the players that we can’t give the opponent 45 minutes. We lacked aggression, aggression with the ball. We were not very aggressive. two goals. In the second half, you don’t know, I don’t know if Mafra ever reached our goal. We scored two goals and could have scored more. In the second half we were the same team as always. By applying pressure, they scored two goals. We have drawn, we need to fix two games. Playing at home, we get the support of the public. I take this opportunity to thank the fans who came here at this inhospitable time.”

On Ricardo Sousa’s statements in the flash interview: “We can come here ‘bitaitar’ and say a reality that doesn’t exist, trying to convey an image of something that didn’t exist.”

World Cup players and injuries: “We can imagine all possible and imaginary contexts. We have no reason to do what we have done. We depend on ourselves. We didn’t do much today, especially in the first half. .”
